Hi Buchi
Do you mean you get a small desktop inside the screen surround by blank space or black?

If so then I think you are reaching the end of the eMac's life.
These machines have been very good overall. Some had the dreaded capacitor problem , but Apple fixed that on affected machines by replacing the motherboard.
I have of late though seen a few eMacs with display problems. I have one here now with a very pink display - as a computer it works fine, but the display (or display electronics) is giving up.
Unfortunately it is probably not cost-effective to try to repair these machines.
One thing you can do though is connect up an external monitor.
See if you can borrow one and plug it into the video out port (the socket right at the end of the line of connectors on the side of the eMac) You'll need a suitable adaptor though.
`If that display is fine then the problem is with the tube itself, but if the problem is still there, then then the issue is probably the video board - again not worth repairing.

let us know what happens.

SOURCE: G4 problem

Hi, Try shutting the G4 completely down, waiting about 15 seconds, and then booting the Mac with the shift key down. That should clean up a lot, as it gives a safe boot. Then go to disc utilities and repair permissions. That might clean the whole thing up for you. If sounds like it's a Finder problem. If that doesn't work, boot from Disc Warrior or Tech Tools and run a few tests. Good luck!

SOURCE: Is there an adapter which

The only thing I have found that will work with these speakers is called the Griffin iFire. It use a firewire port on your mac to power the speakers and has a normal mini plug on the end of it. However, saying this they are not readily available you may be able to pick them up on ebay or another auction site at some point. An review of the iFire can be found at http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/general/54505/griffin-ifire

If it only boots to a blue screen, try booting up in Safe Boot mode:

If this does not work, boot from your install DVD and use Disk Utility to repair the disk:

If this does not resolve the issue you may need to use your isntall disc to perform an Archive and Install:

Hi i would like to find out what is the latest software for an apple G4 Emac computer.


Well you will have to look for software made for the PowerPC architecture and not for x86 systems. Look for universal binary in the software as this shows that it will work on PowerPC architecture.As for the operating system OS 10.5 Leopard was the final version for PowerPC based systems.
Good luck

Without having the unit in front of me, it sounds like the video component is bad. However, you could have a bad battery in the
computer. Try replacing it... (Cost should be <$12 US)
